Sony shows new B160 Walkman MP3 players

Sony on Thursday announced the upcoming release of a new Walkman series, the NWZ-B160. The digital audio players come in a two-tone color and sport Sony's Zappin song search feature that lets users browse through their music by getting a short preview of each track, choosing to stop on a particular one they like. There is also a Bass button that will bump up the low-end performance of the music and turn on an LED pulse in time with the music.

The latest Walkmans weigh one ounce and are under four inches long. Sony claims 18 hours of battery life and a three-minute charge time that returns 90 minutes of playback. Also making its debut with these devices is a detachable belt clip for attaching to clothes or bags.

Users can put their music library on the devices through a built-in USB port by dragging and dropping them from most any computer or by using Windows Media Player 11 or 12. Storage capacities are unspecified at this time.

The new Walkmans ship in June, though prices haven't been announced.
